Advanced Market for Advanced Technologies
Japanese shipowners and shipyards have always taken a long term vision to ensure their long term viability. It involves developing and investing in advanced technologies that enable them to stay ahead of the competition and to weather market disruption. Consequently the Japanese market offers abundant opportunities for international suppliers of innovative products and technologies in marine equipment, parts and components, as well as products and services for shipbuilding and vessel operation. Every two years, Japan’s maritime industry gathers at Sea Japan to inspect the latest developments and to discuss strategy and investment. Make sure your products and services are part of the discussion. Exhibit at Sea Japan 2018.

I-Tech’s mission is to bring new dimensions to the global antifouling industry by taking a bio-technology approach to biofouling control. Based in Gothenburg, I-Tech supplies its unique barnacle-repellent ingredient Selektope® to coatings manufacturers for inclusion in marine antifouling products. When present in a marine coating, Selektope® stimulates the barnacle larvae’s octopamine receptor, keeping the larvae in swimming mode rendering them unable to attach to hard surfaces. The effects of this neurological scrambling are temporary, with the larvae returning to normal functional capacity shortly after encountering Selektope®.
